Nissan all-new electric compact car

Nissan has announced that it will build an all-new compact electric vehicle (EV) to succeed the Micra.

Planned to be manufactured in the Renault ElectriCity centre in France, the new car will become the entry-level vehicle in the Nissan line-up.

Naming, launch timing and technical details, will be released in due course, says Nissan.

The new Nissan EV is being launched as part of the new Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance 2030 roadmap, which focuses on EVs and connected mobility activities.

The compact electric car will be designed by Nissan and engineered and manufactured by Renault on the Alliance CMF B-EV platform.

The platform is aimed at enabling respective brands in the Alliance to maintain styling for their respective products.

Nissan chief operating officer, Ashwani Gupta, said: “This all-new model will be designed by Nissan and engineered and manufactured by Renault using our new common platform, maximising the use of our Alliance assets while maintaining its Nissan-ness.”

He added: “This is a great example of the Alliance’s ‘smart differentiation’ approach. Succeeding our iconic Micra, I am sure this new model will provide further excitement to our customers in Europe.”

The new compact EV adds to the number of Nissan vehicles manufactured by Renault in France, which include Nissan’s portfolio of LCVs, notably the new Nissan Townstar, which is succeeding the e-NV200 as Nissan’s small electric van.
